My Bloggy Valentine


Happy Valentine's Day to you.
May some of your love dreams come true.
But if you're a drunk,
Your dreams may be junk,
So, I wish you sobriety too.

And now you know why I don't think of myself as a poet!

My migraine is gone.  The world is beginning to look like a nice place again.  I will get out there amoungst 'em, and see what happens today.

I had my Valentine's Day date on Saturday night and it was lovely.  Do you know that I have a philosophy about love and attraction as a person with a history as I have?

I believe, from many years of hard earned experience, that if I meet someone and immediately am drawn to him as a moth to a flame, it is pathology.    Earlier in my sobriety, I used to say that I was looking for love of the educational variety.  That is, that I would meet someone and first fall in like with him, later fall in love.  I am drawn to men who are alcoholic, angry, and sometimes abusive.  I would hope, in the future, to avoid men like this.

But what do I know?  I have seen many relationships that started in very inauspicious ways turn into lovely marriages.

The world doesn't boil down to hard lines of formulae.  It is softer and lovelier than that.

Happy Valentine's Day.  My fondest wish is that I will end my day thanking God for another day of sobriety.  I hope you all do too.

I used to call myself an a**hole magnet - I'm pretty sure those days are behind me, heh. Happy Valentine's Day!

I do think that falling right away has its pathology. But for now, I guess that our pathology worked okay. We are still together, been through a lot, still love each other, and still working on ourselves. Life is good. Happy <3 <3 to you MC.

I am going to share this post with a friend of mine who is struggling through this issue. She would love a relationship but, as I always tell her, her "picker-outer" is broken.

Thanks for the post - Happy Valentine's Day!
